.i.v. seen it over the debt ceiling. i've seen it over the fiscal cliff that is just unnecessary. there needs to be a lel of pragmatism back to our politics. i give a lot of credit to the president. he's not just saying let's raise taxes. he said the obvious we in america cannot continue to spend more than we take in. it's something i don't have the luxury of as mayor doing. what i see the president doing is putting tremendous cuts on the table trillions of dollars of cuts. you just heard the chief of staff say they're willing to put $4 trillion in cuts but it has to be in a balanced way. the challenge i see right now if this happens the sequester happens, the cuts will be blunt brutal and mind as opposed to being intelligent and insightful. and it will not invest. it will stop us from investing in those critical areas in america we must invest on if we want long-term economic growth. >> schieffer: mr. mayor let me ask you one thing, frank lautenber, the long-term senator from new jersey said he will not seek reelection. you said you were thinking about it. i think you put together some sort

, and the debt ceiling. the sequester, it really aims at the wrong side of the problem. the long-term challenge is entitlements, the sequester is fundamentally about discretionary spending, from a fiscal hawk point of view it doesn't get to the issue. >> what you say, ron, revenue, additional tax increases? >> from a -- tactical point of view, the democrats are putting themselves in the position by not getting everything they want. asking the republicans to come back and asking for a second tax increase is asking for a lot, politically. >> what about that dana? >> absolutely, the moment the deal was struck on new year's eve or new year's day, kind of a blur, republicans came out and said if the democrats think they will get anymore tax increases they're living on mars. it is not going to happen. it is it, we're done, not going to happen. you're exactly right, we're done. what is so fascinating, making people frustrated with washington right now is exactly what you said, ron, the whole point of the sequester was to cut in places that hurt, because they did that to force congress to do what was h

politicians why they do not do more of it. that is why republicans caved on the debt ceiling. that is why they will cave on some of these other fiscal things going forward. it is up to the voters to make this happen. the politicians just react to the pressures. host: steve mcmahon, a co- founder of purple strategies, and also a media strategist for democratic campaigns. thank you so much for joining us. david winston, a brief thought? guest: if look at what newt gingrich did and bill clinton did, balancing the budget, getting unemployment under four%, bill clinton and newt gingrich laid out that pattern. i wish president obama would engage the house republicans the way bill clinton did. host: david winston, a republican strategist, you can hear his election analysis on cbs news. coming up next, we will look at the executive order the president signed last week with larry clinton of the internet security alliance. then our next guest will be an expert on nuclear weapons, who will talk about which nations have nuclear capabilities. all of that after this break. ♪ >> we have a habit in thi

of the aisle. we had the fiscal cliff, now we have this, we have the debt ceiling deadline in may. there's no dramatic substantive action. it's just one little baby step or kick it down the road and here we are again. and they're playing with people's jobs, money, taxes, livelihoods. our government just seems so dysfunctional and broken and gridlocked. >> and then things like this happen and we go until the 11th hour and oh, a solution but it's not really a solution because we've only done half of the work we should have done. in three months we'll talk about it again and we go through this all over again. just talking about we want to blame both sides and we want to say everybody is responsible. but president obama was up there with the first responders, and some people are questioning whether or not that was a manufactured setup and a scenario where he was like, i'm with these guys, you're the ones that are not able to let this happen and you're going to affect them. but was that necessary is the question? >> all politicians like their backdrops and to put a human face on the issue. fo

to our country. >> now, when it came to negotiations on the debt ceiling deal those came down to the wire. we saw the same thing with the fiscal cliff that didn't get resolved until after the deadline had passed and the sequester was supposed to take effect in january, but it got pushed to march. i have to ask you as a member of congress, why does congress put everything to the last minute, right down to the wire. is there a procedural reason for that? a tactical reason? >> it's like poker. you wait until you get the last card in order to find out whether you think you can win or not and then you normally assess what happens if you lose. but when you have a handful of people that can't lose and they want to win and if they stop government they've won and they don't feel the pain like it's their mom or their kids that are losing. they believe that their conservatism is enough to be a patriot to bring their own party down, but to bring the country down with it. and so i heard you say that we'll do this over and over again until people are numb, but even with russian roulette, there is a liv
